Healthy Pregnancies Education Days

As health professionals we have the opportunity to take a lead in helping to prevent childhood obesity.  An important focus for this is investment in pre-pregnancy and ante-natal care, helping ensure good maternal nutrition, working to reduce the prevalence of smoking in pregnancy, and supporting breastfeeding of infants.

Every two years, Toi Te Ora Public Health facilitates a Healthy Pregnancies Education Day where a range of expert speakers present the latest evidence and practice around supporting pregnant women to adopt healthy lifestyles that are protective of health and help prevent the risk of childhood obesity.  This education day encourages interaction with generous question sessions and time for networking.  It is also approved by the Midwifery Council of New Zealand for continuing education points.

Previous Healthy Pregnancies Education Days have focused on:

  • Research on the modifiable risk factors for childhood obesity and implications for supporting pregnant women.

  • Local services available to support women to adopt and maintain healthy practices before, during and after pregnancy.
